And you thought there weren't any decent jobs out there. The New York-New York hotel/casino in Las Vegas is looking for a "spokesperson" to interact with its guests on a daily basis.

So it's now casting "Vinny," someone with a "eats chicken wings, sings drinking songs and dances an Irish jig." (The hotel is hoping to combine Italian and Irish stereotypes into a single character, apparently.) You'll need to be good at playing video games, know a lot about sports, and be pretty good at stand-up comedy to make the cut.

We'll leave it to you to decide how the filmmakers fared in terms of casting. From left to right: actor Henry Goodman as Morgan Stanley chief John Mack; and Michael Brandon as "brash tough-talking" JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon. Update: Dealbreaker has a clip of the movie here. [FT]
